A group of eleven half-naked performers took part in a traditional dragon dance featuring a 20-meter-long fire dragon as 1,500-degree Celsius molten iron water was splashed high into the sky in Tongliang District of Chongqing.

"It's so thrilling that my heart almost stopped beating," a spectator said.

The Tongliang fire dragon dance originated from the metal smelting industry.
